Lakeview Pantry Needs Volunteers

Lakeview Pantry is looking for volunteers to help at both our Sheridan and Oakdale locations.  Join us for one of our upcoming volunteer orientations at our Sheridan location on Tues., Dec. 19 at 6:00 p.m. or on Thurs., Dec. 28 at 11:00 a.m. to get started. We rely heavily on our volunteers to keep our food distribution and home delivery services running, and could not do it without your help.  Whether you are an individual or part of a group interested in volunteering, we have opportunities for you.  With shifts available in the morning and in the evening, both during the week and on the weekends, we welcome volunteers of all ages.    For more information about volunteer opportunities with Lakeview Pantry, check out our website at

I am currently the Communications Director for the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters which represents 33,000 union men and women in three states who swing a hammer for a living. I publsih a magazine, a couple of email newsletters and two websites. I also do videos, webinars, advertisng and public relations. As an avid cyclist I ride a three-wheeled trike 5 to 6 days per week 52 weeks per year which adds up to between 5,000 and 6,000 miles year-round, including daily commutes along Chicago's lakefront ... polar vortexes included. I have never missed a day of work because of Chicago's weather. I am an activist who serves humanitarian and political causes: To advocate for the Sudanese in Illinois who have fled Southern Sudan and Darfur is one of my most rewarding experiences. I work with my son Sean on Sudan presentations at churches and community groups with my Sudanese friends on the problems facing them in Darfur, South Sudan and the United States. My son Sean and I work together on the Abolition Institute which seeks to end slavery in the west African nation of Mauritania. My photography chronicles Chicago's lakefront through my daily rides. My photo website is I just self-published my first photo-book on the history of my Chicago neighborhood: Sweet Home Buena Park. I live about one-half mile north of Wrigley Field in the Buena Park neighborhood.
